more isolated shower potential. this is southern delaware into kent and sussex county. you see heavier rain. cape may getting a good dose. this will continue through the morning hours. not constant, you may not be seeing any rain unless you miss out. throughout the day, we'll have periods of rain moving through, especially south jersey. looking at the best shot. temperatures now are mostly in the low to mid 70s. that's where they will remain through the day. not going to see much change in the temperatures. from 7:00 to 10:00, the pocket of orange is showing an isolated thunderstorm. the areas that appear quickest are the north and west neighborhoods. at 1:30 we have stronger thunderstorms, possible strong to severe. that starts to exit around 6:30. lingering showers possible. we'll put this at a four out of
five. now through 5:00 p.m., new jersey and southern delaware, the afternoon, like i showed you, when we could see severe storms. that would include wind damage or even an isolated tornado possible in the areas. pockets of heavy rain could lead to localized street flooding. damaging winds possible with gusts around 35 to 45 miles at best through your early to late morning hours. ten day on 10, 75 today. not going to see the temperature move much. tomorrow down to 67. look at thursday. only 60 in the afternoon. more sun through about saturday. and then another cooldown with more heavy rain possible on sunday. >> thanks. 5:20 on this tuesday. if you're in bed, watching on tv thinking, man, maybe i should hit the snooze a few more times -- no. get up.
